This work was inspired and adapted from the "Voynich Manuscript," a 15th century codex hand-written in an unknown writing system, which may have been composed in Northern Italy during the Italian Renaissance. The mystery of the meaning and origin of the manuscript has excited the popular imagination, making the manuscript the subject of novels and speculation.

Laurel is a symbol of victory and honor. The ancient Greeks fashioned interlocking branches of the bay laurel (Laurus Nobilis) into wreaths and garlands to celebrate both athletes and poets. Indeed, even in modern days when we talk of “Nobel Laureates” the ancient meaning refers to one “crowned with laurels.”
